Capitol Forest Weekend Ride

We spent a soggy weekend at Capitol State Forest just a few miles south of Olympia, Washington. While the weather was cool and drippy the trail riding was good. Much of the trails meander through mature forest, breaking out here and in clearings created by forestry operations. Water crossings were all handled via sturdy bridges and the trails were among the most signed we’ve ever seen.

The campgrounds that we saw (Margaret McKinney and Mima Falls) were wonderful with sturdy wooden corrals, nearby water, and clean restrooms.
The only negative thing about the area, and we only hit the trails around the Margaret McKinney and Mima Falls campgrounds, was the mud. That’ll clear itself up in a few weeks when the weather clears (I hope!).
For low country riding and camping, with great amenities Capitol Forest makes a great destination.
As always free trail maps, photos, driving directions, trail video (with Minning the Wonder Horse), and more can be found HERE.
